● General: Your pioneering spirit is back and it's looking for something -- or someone -- new to discover! This is going to push the level of excitement in your life up through the stratosphere, which will be tons of fun. Sure, you might have to juggle some social plans around, but no one is going to mind. Follow loose threads that pop up today, and they will lead you to some very interesting conversations. If you come across a person you don't know who has got a bright smile for you, get to know them!
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: Don't count on karma. You may deserve some security, but being deserving only has to do with how hard and how well you work. Instead of laying low, do as much as possible.
● Finances: Getting back up on your horse is a slow process. You need some motivation, and salivating over material possessions won't do the trick. Come up with a few new tricks to add to your earning repertoire to spice things up a bit.
● Love: Impatient with that slacker Cupid? Take matters into your own hands and do something about it. Make the first move. Ask someone new out on a date without hesitation or second guessing. Be confident in your decisions.
● General: Things are right on schedule in your life, no matter how much you have an urge to rush around today. Kick back, relax, and take time to enjoy all of the hard-earned successes you are having right now. If all you do is think about the next mountain you can climb, you will miss out on an amazing view! Stay right where you are for a while -- be grounded, and live in the moment. Your family, friends, and familiar routine are what you should be focused on.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: It's not the right time to implement way-out things. Unless your idea is geared toward the masses, it just won't fly. In other words, don't quit your office job just yet.
● Finances: It doesn't take much to make you feel good today. A slight up-tick is all you need. Short of that, a cheap addition to your possessions would also do the trick. Nothing luxurious or too indulgent is necessary.
● Love: While waiting for Cupid to notice you, it's easy to get impatient. Take matters into your own hands and start asking people out who interest you. Keep the date light and fun, and then decide if true romance is in the air. It's up to you to make something happen.
● General: Big or small, a few of your problems will be discussed in a public forum today. And, as expected, everyone you know will have their share of advice regarding what you should do about it. You can take the advice of these people if you want to, but wouldn't it be better if you succeed or failed based on your own decisions? Tell those well-meaning people to save their wisdom for someone else. You might not know what you are going to do now, but you will soon. Believe in yourself.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: Don't waste your time trying to get your message across. Your words just get stuck in that ooze of molasses gushing between you and your coworkers. Instead of participating in this anxiety dream, communicate another day.
● Finances: Don't let your thoughts go off on flights of fancy. Daydreaming about spending your money won't help you earn it. For that you need concentration and deep focus.
● Love: Your hopes and wishes are important. Don't put them on hold just because you're worried your friends won't encourage you. Without our dreams, we have nothing to strive for. Share your ideas with people mostly likely to push you in the right direction.
● General: You can reach an important compromise with a friendly authority figure today -- no matter how much friction you have felt with them in the past. Whether you believe it or not, when they say that they like you, they mean it! They see a great future for you, and are more interested in challenging you to rise to your potential than in coddling you and making you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. They are doing you a big favor by pushing you so hard. So meet them halfway. Show them you're game.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: Times are hard for those who care more about people or ideas than the bottom line. Your emotional nature is coming toe to toe with those more aloof or intellectual. Try to face reality without acquiring their hard edge.
● Finances: No matter how many crazy ideas you throw out today, there's always at least one person willing to listen. You may not get the backing you need to get things off the ground, but it's nice to know your target audience is receptive.
● Love: A close friend's contradictory words could make you somewhat suspicious of a hidden agenda. Instead of instantly assuming the worst, ask your pal out to coffee so you can get the full story. This could be a misunderstanding instead of a conspiracy.
● General: The key to financial security right now isn't learning how to make more money -- it's learning how to manage what you already have better. Invest in a book or class that will teach you what you need to know about simple money management. You will enjoy learning just how many options are out there. Then, re-examine your savings situation and your budget. Break down your expenses to find some easy, painless ways to spend less -- and save a lot more.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: You already know how to do basic research. Why not move up to the next level? Some information can only be gleaned by listening to your gut, so trust your instinct when making decisions.
● Finances: You've stubbornly refused to accept your losses and the world seems to be in collusion with you. No one has noticed you have less to show off now than before, but to you it's becoming painfully obvious. Don't let the feeling extend beyond your hurt pride.
● Love: You can have a good time out of anything today. Play Buzzword Bingo when you're trapped in a boring meeting, or I Spy while stuck in traffic. Clue in others on the game so they can keep boredom at bay as well.
● General: If you take your time with your money issues right now, you will be able to stop yourself from spending too much too quickly. When you're face to face with a goodie you've been wanting, count to ten before you grab it and head for the cashier. It might feel like you are fighting the entire gravitational pull of the earth, but the longer you wait the less you're going to want to waste your money on something you don't really need. Time gives you perspective.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: No one is organized, and not a lot will get done today. That's okay for now. Just don't forget to put some work in the bank. You'll need it in a few short weeks.
● Finances: You don't get to choose everything you do today, but you can get a lot out of whatever others choose for you. You'll be forced into an unusual situation. Try to learn from it, if not make a buck off of it.
● Love: Today being defensive won't do you any favors. Not every criticism is meant to be taken personally. Skip the combative attitude and take negative comments with a grain of salt, especially if you are on a date.
● General: This day will be almost completely centered around your relationships, specifically with the people who have helped you the most. As for those fair-weather friends, they will show their true colors soon. There is a realignment going on in your social circle, and it's going to become evident very quickly today that certain people don't treat you as well as you treat them. Some friendships are not meant to last, and that's okay. Just be sure you're not spending too much energy on them.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: The time to appreciate the smaller things in life is still down the road. Way down the road. Things will only get more chaotic from here, so keep your head down and finish up current projects.
● Finances: Some of your things bring comfort to you that money just can't buy. Same with some of your friends. But that doesn't mean there are creature comforts with a price tag that you wouldn't mind having. Just don't go overboard.
● Love: When you treat a first date less like a romance, but more like a job interview you may end up with the results you desire. Reveal a little of your dating experience, promptly return calls and be yourself. You could end up getting an offer you can't refuse.
● General: Emotional conversations will be very distracting for you today, so try to avoid conflict and try not to push anyone's buttons. If you have to tell people what they want to hear in order to keep them happy, then just do it. This is not the day to pick any battles. Rather, it's a day to put all your energy into creating harmony and making sure that everyone can get along. There are much bigger things at stake than being right or getting your own way.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: With all the personalities in the office cast in stone, you're starting to feel like you're in a play. Your role is getting a bit dull and changing your dialogue just won't do the trick. See what else is up your sleeve.
● Finances: When everything you do seems like a contest, you have to pick your battles. Make sure the only ones you engage in have profitable outcomes. The rest are just senseless squabbles.
● Love: When looking for someone worthy of asking out, be methodical in your search. Narrow down possible candidates by different criteria like age, weight/height, interests, job and so on. Once you have a few prospects engage them in conversation to see if they have the one requirement you need -- a brain.
● General: Your road to romance will take a little bit of a detour today, but it will be a fun one! Just roll with these changes and keep a positive attitude. You are in for some interesting surprises and delightful adventures. Even if a date you've been looking forward to gets canceled, it will be for the best -- you have to believe that! So stay hopeful and you'll stay cheerful. Having positive emotions will show the universe that you are ready for positive encounters.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: You just can't get revved up to start the day, and your usual toolbox isn't helping. When coffee won't do the trick, look to a more unusual source of inspiration: Past triumphs. Do some reminiscing.
● Finances: Getting your message across is a breeze today. You might even miss your more tortured attempts at communicating, but don't. Once your point has been taken, move on to the next row to hoe.
● Love: Your creativity could lead you to your next relationship. Attend a drawing workshop or an acting class to meet like-minded artistic people. Kindred spirits can make for compatible romantic partners. Let your mutual interests be the conversation starter.
● General: A friend you used to see with some regularity seems to have dropped off the face of the earth, and you miss them. If your phone calls and emails have gone unanswered, don't take it personally. They have a lot of stuff going on right now, and they might just need some breathing room. Even though you may mean well, they might not have time to give you the attention you need. Use this time to get to know someone new in your life a little bit better. You have room in your life for more friends.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: You can be pretty creative when it comes to stretching a dollar, but you've taken that approach as far as it can go. Face it, you need an advance on a project. Don't be too proud to ask.
● Finances: You don't need anyone else telling you your idea is a good one, and you won't listen to naysayers, either. You know in your gut that you're onto something, and that's basically all you need to know.
● Love: Constant worrying about whether you'll ever find The One could prevent you from dating the right person. Desperation attracts frauds, manipulators and slackers. Let go of your insecurities and be the strong, self-confident person that gets the attention of someone worthy of your time.
● General: You're starting to detect some patterns in a friend's behavior that could be starting to worry you. Before you jump to any conclusions, get some time alone with this person today. See if you can get to the bottom of what is going on with them. They might need someone to talk to, and your ideas and feedback could be just the ticket to help them start unraveling a knot of confusion in their life. You are more useful to the people in your life than you realize.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: Can someone decide to be compassionate? Not really, but they can decide to take out their checkbook. If you have to be cold and intellectual about it, then so be it, as long as you're willing to help.
● Finances: Your peculiarities are showing, and they look wonderful. You can't buy the kind of eccentricities you've honed lately. They just prove you're secure with who you are, if not with your nest egg.
● Love: Ask someone out to an informal cup of Joe. The coffee date is the most casual, low pressure event one can use as a stepping stone to a more intimate meeting. This is the best way to test out the initial chemistry between two people without investing anything more than a latte.
● General: Your instincts are strong right now, so your guesses will really be much more accurate than they typically are. Hunches will lead you to great discoveries. You'll have a knack for reading body language and gaining insight into what people are really saying. Apply this intuitive ability to your career, and you will come up with valuable conclusions that could help you get up a higher rung on the ladder a lot earlier than you thought you could.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: Colleagues will treat you better if you treat yourself well. So even though times are tough, buy yourself a new suit of clothes or get a great haircut. Consider it an investment.
● Finances: You could use a love letter right about now. The ironic thing is, you've been receiving them for a while without recognizing them for what they are. Money isn't involved, in case that confused things for you.
● Love: Riddles are fun to solve. But when it comes to new romantic interests it can be sexier to keep a little mystery in the mix. You don't need to figure out someone completely before you can take a gamble on love. Have fun flirting with an enigma.
